A few years back I got sick of barrels and tarps and bought a Billy goat for my tailgate. Loved it. I have built a bigger box two times since, and have been vey pleased with the unit. Last fall I bought a Walker. It has changed my system entirely, with the leaves being mulched as fine as they are when I dump. And now I get easily 2 times as much on my truck as before. (I can tell from the wieght) What used to go throught the hose was clogging, I had to try to fluff the duff as it went in the inlet. So it came to me, at night, a simple idea. I bought a piece of 8" stove pipe and 2 elbows cut a couple notches in the end so it stays on like the original. and now I have a 3 foot completely smooth hose. I dump on my trailer, as many as 6 loads then fire up the Billy goat. 5 minutes tops even for straight grass and I'm back on the mower!. Someday I'll spring for a digital camera and show you guys the rig. "A study in farmer technology"
